Alaqua Country Club will host 108 of the best young female players in the world for 54 holes of competitive play. Each professional will be playing for a piece of the $150k purse. The Symetra Tour Professionals’ stakes are high at this tournament, as it is the second to last event of the year, and they will be playing for their chance to win a ticket to the 2020 LPGA. We invite you to join us for this wonderful event which proceeds will benefit the Hamlin & Associates Wishmaker’s Ball benefiting the Make A Wish Foundation of Central & Northern Florida, as well as support the dreams of these young female professionals in their journey to the LPGA.
